I finished carving this one this morning. As you can see from the earlier post Blowing in the Wind, there have been some major changes. I decided to make the figure Custer and title it to reflect his jaunty attitude on his way to the Little Big Horn, not knowing what waits for him there. I did take a little artistic license with leaving the neckerchief in place instead of changing it to the scarf you see in all the photos of him. Frankly, I think I would rather wear such an item considering all the dust blowing in their faces while on the trail.
He will have a light colored leather coat and a dark blue shirt with white striping on the color. The bandana will be red. A prominent Gold star should make it plain just who he is.
I hope you like him as I think he'll be a nice little bust once painted. Comments welcome.
